Depends on the day... I try to find a median with what to do with it. And I always make sure to put enough a way for those damn taxes...

I use my AdSense money to finance my R&R at the local pub.

Other than that, it sits in my bank account blinking at me.

OK, I do "reinvest" some of the money in SEO tools, code editors, web servers, etc. but that doesn't sound nearly as sexy as hanging out at the pub.

I put enough away before getting booted to put a down payment on a 8-plex apartment building.

Invest it back into my websites (pay copywriters and build more content rich sites), live off it, just got back from a week at the beach. Hope to make enough to start a retirement fund. Thank you adsense! But adsense is just a part of the picture. WW and it's members have been such an inspiration to me! When an update like Bourbon brings my income down 3K this month, all I have to do is come back to WW and refocus. Tough it up and look at what to do next... the answers are always here.

Thanks

50% goes to investing in the site, webhosting, content and adwords, the other 50% goes to savings.

Pay off debt. I'm paying things off years and years sooner than I ever expected.

I buy apartments ;)

I thought apartments were rented only. Here in CA, we buy CONDOS or Houses and rent apartments.

I stick mine in a large bank account

I spend mine on the 3 H's. Hookers, Heroin, and Horse Racing. :-)

No, just kidding! Twenty percent goes to living expenses and the rest gets banked then invested in Gold/Silver.

try to save most but have a weakness for gadgets (and Ebay late at night after a few pints - have some very strange stuff in my garage as it seemed like a good idea at the time)

I'm still at the small end of town.... < $1000/month. Use it to pay for my sons school fees. That money is from an "accidental" site, which just happened to make money, not really planned. Got me interested enough that I have now launched another with a few more in planning. Hoping it will eventually be a second job, work part time on my day job and part time on adsense.

A colleague in the UPS club got me REALLY interested :)

Wanted to buy a second hand pontiac but since i just found out the turnaround time for the check to arrive is one month, i guess i will go for hyundai ascent.

Oh.. it's a second hand car also btw. Not qualified for a new car.

I've always wanted to save the money to buy Google someday, but my math is telling me that this is simply not going to happen. So for now paying for my meager living expenses is good enough.

I live 70% from my AdSene money and invest it for travels to fairs and interesting companies where I write articles about.
